Mr. Zachery Quotes in Set It Off (1996)
Mr. Zachery Quotes:
Detective Strode: [after Frankie is unexpectedly thrust into a bank robbery while working] Okay, okay. Let's take this from the top.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: I thought we covered everything.
Detective Strode: How well did you know the perpetrator?
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: I've just known Darnell from around the way, is all. We live in the same projects.
Detective Strode: Frankie, will you do me a favor? Just tell me one thing, and we'll get out of here.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: Sure.
Detective Strode: What's the procedure when you're being robbed?
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: Look, sir, I kn...
Detective Strode: Stop! Stop! Stop! Now... what's the procedure when you're being robbed?
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: You pull the money clip from your right-hand drawer. And then you signal with your left hand.
Detective Strode: You signal with the left. So you know the procedure.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: Yes, like I said, the procedure has been told to me over a million times.
Detective Strode: So, why is it, if that procedure's been drummed into your head a million times... you got that procedure down... Why wouldn't you follow it? Huh?
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: Because he had a gun! And I went for my clip, but he shot her! He shot her right in front of me!
Mr. Zachery: I'm afraid, Miss Sutton, that we're going to have to let you go. The fact that you knew the perpetrator doesn't sit well with us.
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: Wait, wait. But that's not right. I haven't done anything wrong! I can't help who I know! Mr. Zachary, just last week, you gave me a promotion. Now you're going to take my job away from me like this?
Mr. Zachery: What happens the next time one of your friends robs the bank? How do we know you're not in collusion?
Francesca 'Frankie' Sutton: [angrily] In COLLUSION? Let me tell you something! I am here at 8:20 sharp every morning and I work my ass off until quitting time. Yesterday, I counted $240,000 by hand for you! That's how you should KNOW! I mean, COME ON! This is just NOT RIGHT! I nearly got blown away in your tight-ass fucking bank, and you're going to FIRE me? You couldn't even WAIT!-- Mr. Zachery
